Is elevated systolic blood pressure associated with risk for valvular heart disease?

July 10, 2019

What The Study Did: A group of 329,237 men and women of white Bristish ancestry with genetic data in the UK Biobank and blood pressure measurements were included in a study that examined the association between systolic blood pressure and risk of major valvular heart disease.
